Nature’s Anthology – ATC Envelope Folder with ATC Ticket Journal by Laura Carson

Owls! I think Laura is fond of owls! Here’s some intro text from Laura’s blog post:

I decided to go with a nature theme and used a variety of collage sheet images to decorate both the mailer and inside ticket journal. I tied my journal together with a piece of lace [see the top right photo above].

There are lots of ways you could use the mailer, for example, I think it would work great as an invitation.

I added an ATC sized card to the mailer tab. The card is covered with decorative on which I printed (by running the paper through my printer) “Nature’s Anthology.”

To decorate both the front of the ATC Envelope Folder and the ATC Ticket Journal I used 5 different collage sheets that contained birds, squirrels, rabbits, bees, butterflies, snails, leaves, and toadstools.
